Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television, Dating, Clothing, Style, Rumors,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West has urged Kim Kardashian to take style tips from Duchess Catherine.

The rapper believes his girlfriend of six months - who shot to fame after making a sex tape with her then boyfriend Ray J - could learn a lot from the British royal's "poise and sophistication" along with her conservative style.

Speaking about the duchess - who was previously known as Kate Middleton - a source told the Daily Star newspaper, "Kanye has been urging Kim to tone down her make-up and style her hair in a more conservative style, like Kate. And it's not just Kate's regal look that Kanye wants Kim to mimic. He's also told her that she could learn a thing or two about poise and sophistication from Kate."

Kim recently revealed Kanye has managed to convince her to live her life at a slower pace and focus less on her work and more on her personal life.

Kelly Osbourne: ‘I Think Lady Gaga is Pregnant’

Kelly Osbourne with Lady Gaga insetKelly Osbourne thinks that Lady Gaga is pregnant.

The outspoken Fashion Police star shared her observations on the "Born This Way" singer's noticeable weight gain and claimed Gaga - who is dating Vampire Diaries actor Taylor Kinney - has been hiding her stomach lately.

"I think she is pregnant because she has been covering up this part of her body recently and I have been noticing that a lot. And her style has changed and you can't bleach your hair blonde when you are pregnant," she said.

However, Kelly's comments came before Lady Gaga praised marijuana as she lit up on stage in Amsterdam.


Glenn Close Wears Her Movie Costumes

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrity Gossip,

Glenn CloseGlenn Close keeps her outfits from her TV and film roles.

The 65-year-old actress "hates" shopping and doesn't buy many clothes for herself, so she likes to wear the costumes donned by her screen alter-egos. "I really hate shopping. Maybe a handbag. I don't spend a lot of money on myself. I'm very lucky I can wear some of the costumes from the Patty Hughes character in the series Damages," she admitted.

Glenn has enjoyed a career which has spanned four decades, but she believes social networking website Twitter has had a huge impact on the film industry. The screen icon thinks micro-blogging site has made it harder to get certain types of movies commissioned, meaning independent films face more "challenges" than ever before.

"Studios make their money with Spider-Man and Transformers. The big movies make the money and they can't afford to make the smaller movies because of things such as marketing costs. There will always be independent films and there are the film festivals that are important venues for those movies but it's never going to be easy. It's challenging and I know there's an audience for independent films - but they're not in the 18 to 25 demographic. There are so many different ways to watch films now. If you don't have a movie that's Tweetable in the first five minutes you're told you've got a problem. People are always fascinated by stories. The challenge is there are a lot of things competing for people's attention against films."


Kim Kardashian: Similarities Are Important

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKim Kardashian thinks that similarities are "essential" in relationships.

The reality TV star loves the fact she and boyfriend Kanye West have a shared passion for fashion because it means they can have "in-depth" discussions about their careers, and she thinks common interests will be increasingly more important as they get older.

"If I have a design meeting, or he has one, we come back and talk about how our meetings went. It's cool, because you can definitely get more in-depth with someone who actually knows what you're talking about ... So that's been a fun similarity we have. I think it's essential to have similarities. When this whole life is done, and it's just the two of us sitting somewhere when we're 80, you want to have things to talk about that you have in common. I think that's something maybe I didn't value as highly as a quality I cared about in someone."

Katy Perry Believes She Has a Split Personality

Katy PerryKaty Perry feels she has a split personality.

The "Firework" hitmaker admits her outrageous outfit choices reflect her moods at the time and says that is why her creations are sometimes bizarre because she feels a mixture of emotions.

"My sense of style is like one of those things that change color with mood, always evolving. When I get up, I choose my outfit depending on my state of mind. If it is a 'mixture of many things' it is because I feel many different emotions at the same time, to the point where you feel you almost have a split personality. Basically, in the past, my preferences were always directed towards styles that were daring; the flashier, shinier and imposing the dress the better, this is the reason why I still love the work of Jean Charles de Castelbajac and Jeremy Scott."

Is Kris Jenner Losing Kim to Kanye?

Kim Kardashian and Kanye WestKim Kardashian's mother fears she is "losing" her to Kanye West.

Kris Jenner is worried her daughter's new relationship with the rapper is taking over her life and she may be willing to put him before her family.

"Kris feels like she is losing Kim to Kayne and she is devastated. She never ever thought Kim would put a man before family, but that's what Kim is doing. Kris and Kayne have really strong personalities and like to be in control. Kim and all the girls are so used to Kris calling all the shots. I think deep down Kim likes having Kayne being in charge. She is used to that role because she grew up with such a controlling mother," a source said.

Kanye has already reportedly had an effect on Kim's style, urging her to be more daring with her outfits. "He thinks she should be more like him, edgy with her choices," a source said.
